Abdallah Ghazlan

 

Dr Abdallah Ghazlan is a Research Fellow in the Department of Infrastructure Engineering at the University of Melbourne. He is also a member of the Advanced Protective Technologies for Engineering Structures group, which is one of the leading centres in the development of innovative materials and structural systems for protecting infrastructure from extreme loads.

Dr Ghazlan's research expertise includes computational design, generative design and additive manufacturing (3D printing).

The focus of his recent research is on bio-inspired structures and systems, where he explored novel architectures found in nature, including those in nacre from mollusk shells and trabecular bone, to develop innovative protective structures for mitigating blast and impact loads. The main techniques employed to mimic these intricate structures include generative design, machine learning and 3D printing for proof-of-concept prototyping. Specifically, Dr Ghazlan developed algorithms to interface with the advanced programming interface of commercial finite element software to identify optimal protective structures from a set of design parameters. Machine learning was also employed as a tool to extract the optimal structure from a large space of design parameters, which is not computationally feasible to obtain by finite element simulations.
